Who’d of thought I’d in the middle of Houston we’d chance upon an awesome little Italian place to have dinner?  That’s exactly what we found when we were hunting after another one of those food trucks one cold evening in Houston.

This place would have to be one of my best finds while I was roving around Austin!  Having just finished a mentally taxing meeting I was looking for something quick to go yet filling to eat.  After being directed by an attendant at a mall towards a taco place I stumbled upon this nonchalant burger join (it turns out later I discovered that the Taco Shack was just across the road).

Sydney has pancakes on the rocks; Austin Texas has IHOP.  Like Denny’s IHOP rides on the American Diner concept, but the specialty of this chain are their ‘award winning’ pancakes.  I found myself one morning tired of the hotel breakfast so I decided to venture out for some pancakes.

A Trip to Denny’s

Austin Texas

Yeah I know it’s a diner chain; but hey what’s a trip to the US without a pit stop to Denny’s?  My last visit to a Denny’s was way back at Gilroy Shopping village in California and that was for a monstrous breakfast.  As soon as I knew I was bound for the US again I was set upon getting my teeth into their chicken fried steak (CFS).

What is a chicken fried steak I hear you ask?  It is in its simplest form traditionally unwanted steak flattened then coated in panko/breadcrumbs, then deep fried until it is a ever so crunchy golden brown and topped with a creamy sauce; yumo I hear you say.

I’ve cooked my own version at home but with a more beef based gravy; the dish in its entirety reminds me of the Austrian/German schnitzel but with meat (as opposed to pork, chicken or veal).

I have to say that the CFS at Denny’s was a little too thick batter wise, but as with all things in Texas the serving was huge; washed down with a vanilla shake and my meal was complete.  All in all it was worth the experience; that and I was really tired from a hard days worth of work, but personally I much prefer their breakfast.

Hot Diggity Dog

Good Dog Various Locations In and Around Houston Texas

Good Dog Hotdogs

You’d think I’d have had my fix after almost biting off more than I can chew at Bernie’s Burger Bus I decided to head out the next morning for some not so ordinary hot dogs.  A date was set to travel out to a nursery of all places to get my hot dog fix and I wasn’t to be disappointed.
